So, to recap, I’m prrrreeeetttttty sure I don’t have to publish one more thing until 2015. Whew.

Some technical notes:

Last year I made my annual report in Adobe Illustrator. The year before that, I used Microsoft Word. This year I used PowerPoint – yeah, PowerPoint! I hear of more and more people who can’t or don’t want to pay for access to Adobe and turn to PowerPoint as a layout tool so I thought I’d give it a try. And for sure, it’s pretty friendly.

The icons are nearly all actually fonts. No kidding! And free fonts, at that. You just insert a textbox and type the letter that matches your icon. The state shapes are a font called StateFace. The journal and book icons came from the Modern Pictograms font. The transportation icons are part of the font Cittadino Symbols.

Kick off the new year with a webinar on Smart Data Visualization, why dontcha?
